Haha Chuck WOULD read someone elses memoir at Dan's book signing! Especially a memoir that is dealing with issues MUCH heavier than the petty shit Dan's writing about! I applaud Chuck for maturing with his more subtle "take that" remarks and actions :)

I forgot to say that I totally called that Dair would have serious troubles to work on the show. I keep saying I have Chuck and Blair related and non related reasons to not like Dair. Well this is one of my non related Chuck and Blair reasons. I could have told you that Dan would end up emotionally hurt in all this. This is way I didn't want him in the middle of Chuck and Blair. Now I think it's even worst, he's not in the middle of Chuck and Blair, and yet Blair was able to hurt him. The many happenings of the episode didn't allow us to see how he dwelled on the fact that Blair pretty much rejected him so straing forwardly, but that's what happened. You can only imagine than that's got to hurt. Blair simply is not interested in him that way, even if she was tempted during season 4 she quickly snapped out of it. She should have read the whole book to make an informed judgment of whether she liked her portrayal or not, but she didn't, and maybe she would have tolerated the rest (if it's that favorable to her as Vanessa claimed and the show sorta seems to imply) hadn't it included a sex scene that had not real life base. The scene was apparently jeopardizing her royal engagement, but even though it had seemed to some at times that Blair has tried to come out with excuses to break off this engagement, apparently her desire to break it wasn't greated than her outrage for a fictional scene written for the alter egos of her and one of her closest friends at the moment. She could have used all this as an excuse to let Louis go and yet sh didn't. How many proofs are necessary to admit that Blar is not in that place with regards to Dan and that unfortunately he will como out hurt in that process?

@ Uncle Jackass: I don't know, everybody in the forum keep saying Kirsten is not reliable, that she never gets the spoilers right, so I don't, people prefer to trust in Ausiello nowadays.

To the first person that posted a comment: that was mean, you don't have to be so bitter about this, chill out it's just a TV show. And the point you and some others tried to make is quite off, in fact I find the commentators here have tried to not ship much this season, I've been reading recaps and the majority of the commentators on other sites are claiming for Chuck and Blair:

Just like last week, the highlight of the night was Blair and Chuck’s scene in the park; as was suggested by a commenter last week, I so want Blair to have lied to him about the baby and for it to wind up being his. Are you listening, Gossip Girl writers? The people have spoken and we’re all about Blair and Chuck.” - Daemon’s TV

“She finally tells Serena that she’s pregnant. Blair tells the prince he’s got to learn to trust her. Even though we’re secretly hoping she lied to him and Chuck and is the real baby daddy.”- Wall Street Journal

“Of course, we finally get our second Chuck/Blair scene of the season while the two head to Dan’s book reveal. And they’re walking with Monkey too! It’s a short scene but an adorable one, especially when Monkey pulls the two together. Is Monkey secretly a Chair shipper?”- BuddyTV

"8:40: Louis is convinced that Dan slept with Blair. He trusts her off all night with Chuck but gets scared shitless by a Dan Humphrey memoir? This man is an idiot." - The Faster Times

On a different note, nobody has mentioned that Chuck and Louis had a scene. If this was the emotional scene that was mentioned in a spoiler last week, it was emotional, yes, but not what I was expecting, I was expecting some sort of confrontation or smackdown between them, but what we had was a emotional moment from Chuck's side, because from Louis side he was too pissed off to be emotional. Funny thing though, it was obvious Chuck felt his words have come to haunt him when Louis repeated what Chuck had said about Blair in the 4x21 episode.

About the last part, the big reveal with Louis will be to see if he will be able to live up to his words that he wanted to know all sides of Blair, even the darker ones. I think he thought her dark side was more or less... normal, a bit strong but not much than the dakr side anyone could have, including him. I think he's starting to realize this might be bigger than he thought, and his big test will be to see if he can live with that, which he probably won't be ablet to, he will ended up rejecting her or turning himself to the dark side, this last one is a stronger possibility after the spoiler saying he's taking note from Blair's book to extract Chuck from her life.

Nobody has mentioned that Chuck turned up the charm with Alexandra, Dan's agent (Lily's reaction to that was hilarious), but girl is so silly, seriously independently of who he was, who says to a person that just met all the things she said to Chuck? How insensitive was that? (The NY magazine reality index noticed it too)

Also wasn't supposed to be a scene that would made us want to wear adult diapers? Many said it was in this episode, but I didn't see anything that big, maybe it was in another episode, in a future episode perhaps?

I loved the scene of Dan and Chuck in the penthouse. It looked to me that at least in that moment, Dan was enjoying the dog more than Chuck. But I later found out that Chuck was preparing Monkey's food during his conversation with Nate? I need to rewatch this episode, those little details are amazing (Chuck was reading a book about a lady who founded a human rights organization in that scene where Serena approached him and started complaining about Dan's book, that was also a nice detail). I just read a fanfic where the made Chuck suggest Dan to buy a dog after a confrontation with Blair because he was going to need it. It just stroke me that this could actually make sense in the show, or Dan could share Monkey with Chuck, who knows.

the book kiss scene is probably just dan's imagination of what he thinks should have happened to the real kiss that dan and blair had. i mean they used the same music, setting etc.
i think the writers prob put it in there as one last hurrah for dair before chair reunites.
i just hope im wrong and chair can just be a nice memory from the first 3 seasons. time to move on i say.

the scene btw blair, chuck and monkey wasn't sweet at all. it felt kinda forced. just my opinion.
though i do like the evolving chuck. looks like he's is growing up, too bad blair grew up 2 seasons ago.

and just on next week, really interested to see what diana uncovers on blair should be fun!
but i think the whole louis finding the envelope and the fact that we know louis is gonna make chucks life hell means he either found out the baby is chucks or he knows they had sex. either way SUPER EXCITED for next week!!!

OMG! I'd swear on anyone, I was thinking bout their hair today too!!
Blair's hair looks terrible! And so does her make-up. what's with the excessive powder and red lips in all scenes?? The only time Leighton looked incredible in Season 5 is in the Jenny Packham show scenes.. (so glad she had scenes with Penn then) but my point is it's not L's real-life bangs that's the problem. It's whoever they've hired for the make-up and hair needs to wake up!!
As for Penn, i know he's doing the Jeff Buckley movie.. so i guess that's ok. I don't like him in short hair either.. for me, he looked soo handsome in the 4x17 scenes! It's weird those shots are the ones TVF has used in the recent posts!! :D

GET LOUIS OFF THE BLOODY SHOWWWW!!! just looking at the looser reaks desperation he's so annoying. i understand that he comes from monaco so he's a foreign acter but come on!! he's terrible!

and dan... REALLYYYY?! you've been inlove with blair for months now and thats how you portray the sex scene! I WANT BLOODY PASSION! if there gonna set up dair it has to be better than that if its gonna match chair!

and i really didnt like the way he portrayed serena, like i saw it coming but she's so write he's the only one who knew her for who she wanted to be and he just killed it. and then he goes "oh sorry i need to go find blair." SHUTUP MUPPET HAIR AND HAVE A SERIOUS CONVERSION!!! so glad he's alone right now.

and my poor chuck :( that was sad :(

and to even portray his own father like that. arghh humphrey you've got a LOT of redeeming to do buddy

Nevertheless, I personally think the only thing Dan and Blair share is bad hair. I mean SERIOUSLY! The whole freaking gg team must be turning over because their hair is ruining perfectly good scenes! Blair looks greasy overall and the only time Dans hair looked alright was during the Inside party.

Don't worry Dair fans, even if TVF is a bit lopsided on the Chair side doesn't mean the gg writers have forgotten about you. Gossip Girl herself even made a "dair" pun when they kissed ;)
